     Art Journaling- the journey begins

Pippi Longstockings art journal spread Galia Alena

I believe that it is a given that everyone is creative although not everyone has been given the space or practice to explore and allow their creativity to really express itself freely. Art journaling allows you to untether your creative juices and play freely, all that is required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to both get messy and trust.

This course runs for 4 weeks and will give you both the tools and the permission to get started on your own creative journaling practice- no previous experience of any kind needed :).

We will be covering both technique and processes:

  •  Week 1: Facing the Blank Page
  • Week 2: Getting UnStuck
  • Week 3: The Safety of the Page
  • Week 4: Finding your own Voice

Next Session begins will be in March

Cost: $160

As a beginner with zero experience in journaling, I enjoyed your class very much. You are so talented and such an amazing human being, with an special way of sharing your knowledge. Hope to see you sometime again in the future.

I enjoyed watching you do your thing... Then try my hand at it! Such fun... I even went out and brought things from the art store I’d never heard of or knew how to use prior to your class! Lol thank you Galia Alena for showing me new and very beautiful techniques!! xoxoxo

I learned to let go while creating and it jumpstarted a new way of approaching journaling and artistic expression. So enjoyed our time together. Beginning to work on daily ideas with specific phrases and themes. Nothing I would have done or experimented with before working with you. Thank you

Journal Circle

Journal Circle is a sacred and dedicated time just for you. A date with your creativity, allowing you to slow down, go deeper and listen to your own wisdom. To Meet Yourself on the Page.

This is a women only group. We will be coming together once a week to explore and support each other’s practice in a safe and sacred container. Together we will use our journals to explore such things as our chakras, moving around the medicine wheel and through the seasons and elements, exploring our personal symbology and other rich and delicious tools in order to deepen our own practices and let our HeartsStorm

All levels welcome although either some art jouraling experience or taking The Journey Begins first is advised.  Mostly what is needed is an intention, trust and curiosity.

Please contact me below if you would like to be part of the next Journal Circle.
